Owls in the snow and winter in summer. Sweating in winter clothes with temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius outside, we finished shooting the main part of the horror film “Snow Owl Slaughter” near Berlin in July 2012. Under the direction of author and producer Thomy Kessler, I played the lead character in this independent movie production. Besides the blood and cuts there was a lot of snow, fake snow that is. Filming a winter setting in summer is quite a challenge, especially for the actors, running around in full winter gear. That’s when real sweat turns into a sweat of fear.
